    leopardi's house - admittedly a lousy picture

    by call_me_rhia Written Oct 17, 2002

    In Recanati you will find the house of the 1800's Italian writer Giacomo Leopardi: you can visit the library there and see the collection of ancient books, as well as admire the window from where he used to spy on Silvia, his `impossible` love.
    For those who don't know him: Leopardi's one of Italy's greatest writers and every student's punishment: find me one who did not have to learn his poem "l'infinito" by heart, and drinks are on me

    a selection of cheeses and cold meats

    by call_me_rhia Written Oct 17, 2002

    a wonderful place... it's located in the middle of the fileds, in a restored farm... everything in the decor is like it once used to be... the people are overfriendly, and they'll do their best to let u sample their most famous specialities.

    Favorite Dish: pasta (big surprise eh?) but also local cheeses and home-made cold meats

    an unforgettable seafood dish

    by call_me_rhia Written Oct 17, 2002

    It's small, cosy... and so finely hidden that only locals can find it. Having said this, it took my local guide quite a bit to locate it again. Top food at affordable prices - you really can get the best Marche food there.

    Favorite Dish: everything with seafood! scampi and prawns! Pastas were delicious too.
